Call for Papers: Ways of Seeing John Berger

Hosted by the Centre for Life-Writing Research, King’s College London and the Department of English & Drama at the British Library

2012 marks the 40th Anniversary of two of John Berger’s major works: the novel G., winner of the Booker and James Tait Black Memorial Prizes, and the collaborative, SFTA/BAFTA-winning BBC TV series and book Ways of Seeing. In celebration, the Centre for Life-Writing Research at King’s College, London, and the Department of English & Drama at the British Library – home, since 2009, to the major collection of Berger’s papers – are holding a series of events.

The conference will be based at King’s College London, with an evening of discussion and celebration at the British Library on Friday 7 September 2012.

To present a paper discussing any aspect of Berger’s life, work, influence, or collaborators, please send an abstract of no more than 500 words to Tom Overton (tom.overton@bl.uk) by 30 April 2012.
